Under Canvas

 

Under Canvas, a glamping company https://www.undercanvas.com/  submitted an application for a Conditional Use Permit from Klickitat County to build a campsite north of Husum.  The number of camping sites could be up to 95.  Access would be from Oak Ridge Road.  Klickitat County issued a draft SEPA determination last fall, and in late December 2020 issued a Revised SEPA determination.  Comments are due on this document on Friday, January 22, 2021, before 5:00 PM. 

The parcel is 120 acres, currently owned by Weyerhaeuser Company.   Find a county map here of the property The parcel is located in T4, R10, Sec 12; T4, R11, sec7.  Under Canvas would use the lower half of parcel 04101200002100.

The parcel has river frontage on both sides of the river, and about 30 acres of it is in the management boundary for the Wild & Scenic segment of the river.  SDS owns land adjacent on both north and south along the river.

FWSR commented, along with many others, on the Draft SEPA determination. Read our letter here.

 

Representatives from the company attended the April meeting of the Husum/BZ Community Council and the April Friends of the White Salmon board meeting, both via internet.

FWSR voted at our May 2020 board meeting to send a letter to Under Canvas and to Weyerhaeuser Company stating that we do not support the project.  We have done so. Read our letter here:  FWSR.Ltr.UnderCanvasMay2020

Excellent, thoughtful article by Sandy DeMent about the SDS sale. Good research, good questions. The corporate relationships are pretty tangled, and one good point the article makes is that these relationships can change quickly. https://www.goldendalesentinel.com/news/sds-sale-nears-completion-raises-questions/article_86f7b024-26d4-11ec-a5fb-b7d2c701db18.html
